Star Trek Fluxx: Porthos Expansion
Add some Enterprise flavor to your collection of Star Trek Fluxx decks! The second of two Enterprise-themed expansion packs is on the light-hearted side, and is named for Porthos, Captain Archer’s dog. Porthos is joined by his crewmate Dr. Phlox, his fellow space pet Spot, a famous Klingon, Kor, and a bottle of Romulan Ale. Also includes a new Action and a New Rule! The Porthos Expansion pack works with any of the 4 standalone Star Trek Fluxxes, but for maximum fun, shuffle these cards together with as many of the Trek Fluxxes as you have! Contains 16 cards.
Are you prepared to boldly go where no Fluxx game has gone before? Based on the ever-changing, endlessly-enjoyable Fluxx series, Star Trek Fluxx takes gameplay to an entirely new quadrant! The basic rules remain the same, but each deck features a full set of Keepers, Creepers, and Goals entirely based on notable episodes or recurring themes from the shows. Further enhancing the chaos and making each version feel different are a handful of themed Actions and Rules unique to the shows. If you’re a Trekkie and enjoy the fantastically frenetic Fluxx franchise, it would be “highly illogical” not to try this series out!
This is a truly chaotic game for the whole family! The entire deck is shuffled and players are dealt 3 cards each. The game begins with only a couple of basic rules, but new rules can be played and goals changed. There are four types of cards in Fluxx: Keepers, Goals, Actions, and New Rules. Keepers are the core of the game and are used to fulfill the current Goal (such as playing a certain combination of Keepers). Actions often affect one player, but can force everyone to draw cards, play cards, and even change the rules! Finally, New Rules add a whole new level of chaos by mandating how the game is played. During each turn, players draw and play as many cards as dictated by the current rules, striving to complete the current goal. But as you may have guessed, this is easier said than done; rules and goals are constantly in flux, requiring luck and timing to achieve victory!
Different versions of Fluxx maintain the basic game play and mainly change Keepers and Goals (for example, Math Fluxx has number cards as Keepers, with the goal of playing the number of your current age, the current date, or other specific numbers). 2-6 players; 5-30 minutes.
